However, dating and courtship often present the greatest challenge to remaining chaste. The reason is with temptation, you are bringing in no acquaintance. So how can you get better acquainted with someone you are dating and pursuing marriage and still keep chaste?

Jeremiah 17:9 warns: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
You may perfectly feel normal with attracting to someone of the opposite sex. But the more you're around each other, the greater the attraction. And this normal desire can lead your heart away from the correct path. Jesus says, For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.-Matthew 15:19
A couple engaged in stroking the skin, or touching the private parts. One unwed mother confessed, "To me and to most of the kids I know, it just kind of went a little further each time, and finally you aren't a virgin anymore.

What can a couple do when their emotions cause to become more serious and they find themselves becoming dangerously intimate? To say or do something that breaks the mood.
